Leaf Candle Holder
Autumn is my favorite season for food, temperature and decorations! For a quick and inexpensive DIY decor project, try creating this fall leaf candle holder to add a little atmospheric light to your home.
- Clean glass jar (the smoother the better, I used an old salsa jar)
- Faux leaves (get ones without large, three-dimensional veins)
- Mod podge
- Paint brush
- Battery-operated candle
- Ribbon and hot glue (optional)
After covering your workspace, paint a section of the jar with mod podge.
Lay a few leaves on the painted area.
Carefully paint more mod podge over the leaves. Don’t worry, the mod podge will dry clear.
Keep moving around the jar, adding more leaves until you cover it as little or as much as you like.
Paint at least two more coats of mod podge over the leaves until all the edges are glued down.
Allow to dry completely.
Add a ribbon or twine to help finish the holder.
Insert a battery-operated candle and enjoy!
